Germinate exhibition opening this Friday 24th Nov. Open Studio Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th , 10-5 at Hearth, 67 Schlich St Yarralumla.
The art director of Creative Catalyst, Teffany Thiedeman is showing what she does! Friday night is the opening night with nibbles provided by Scrumper’s Garden and some lovely craft beer.
All are welcome over the weekend to have a look at her ceramic art work and garden, you can see the clay pizza oven in action over Saturday lunch and there will be a free-time clay table for anyone to have a turn. Fingers crossed it doesn’t rain!
If you are an after school art student you will be walking over to her studio on the week of 27th- 30th November to have a look at the work and enjoy the animals and garden. While there you can draw, paint or play with clay or maybe just soak it all up and have some bunny therapy.
Last year Teffany opened her workshop and garden and launched Hearth as a place for making and showing art in a living environment. Along with the clearly functional garden works like fountains and planters, this year Germinate develops the seed metaphor of sprouting and growing. The concept of the garden being a controlled, enclosed space for the cultivation of plants, animals and states of mind is the perfect setting for art that investigates our role and responsibilities in how we live in the world. Teffany is proud to share the backyard with bees, chickens, rabbits, insects, fish, frogs, birds, lizards, possums, a dog and plenty of humans.
In the workshop you can find teapots, candelabra and cups slip cast under the design label Fetish Designs and you can check out some of the work grown-ups have made during drop in sessions at Ceramic Salon.
